    Karnazes reveals the mind-boggling adventures of his nonstop treks through the hell of Death Valley, the incomprehensible frigidity of the South Pole, and the breathtaking beauty of the mountains and canyons of the Sierra Nevada.

    What made the experience of listening to Ultramarathon Man the most enjoyable?

    I listened as I ran. Kept me going!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The stories are really unbelievable but told with honesty and credibility and just a bit of self deprecation as to not sound like bragging.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me run

  • The Commitment: Love, Sex, Marriage, and My Family

    Story
    (180)

    Dan Savage’s mother wants him to get married. His boyfriend, Terry, says “no thanks” because he doesn’t want to act like a straight person. Their six-year-old son, D.J., says his two dads aren’t “allowed” to get married but that he’d like to come to the reception and eat cake. Throw into the mix Dan’s straight siblings, whose varied choices form a microcosm of how Americans are approaching marriage these days, and you get a rollicking family memoir that will have everyone—gay or straight, right or left, single or married—howling with laughter.

    Michelle says: "Amusing, but missed Dan's voice"
    "I wish Dan Savage had performed his own book"
